CULTURAL EXPERIENCE & DOG SLEDDING
February – March
On the Cultural Experience & Dog Sledding tour, you will experience peace while riding the dog sled (for 7 days) and maybe even become one with nature. You will meet plenty of warm, welcoming and kind local people, eat authentic Greenlandic food at a family’s home, see different settlements, and learn about their culture and history.
We recommend this tour if you want to explore Greenland in a different, unique way.
You’ll arrive to Uummannaq in the late afternoon, get settle and ready to meet the local fishers and hunters, they’ll be excited to meet you and share amazing stories with you. We’ll have dinner together and shortly brief you about the plans for the next days.
In the morning, we’ll start our dog sled trip to the Ikerasak settlement, where local families will be waiting to meet with us and spend some time together learning about the Greenlandic culture.
The next day we’ll dog sled towards Saattut a beautiful area surrounded by mountains and colorful houses. After we arrive, we’ll explore the area and spend the night there.
We’ll start our day with another dog sledding adventure. This time we’ll dog sled to the northern area surrounded by mountains and beautiful landscapes. After we arrive we’ll prepare to camp here for a night.
We’ll wake up and get ready for the next experience. We’ll go ice fishing, drop the line, catch our dinner and then explore the area.
After spending an amazing week in nature, exploring and dog sledding, it will be time to take the last dog sled back. After we arrive, you’ll have time to enjoy the settlement, explore if you want to or just relax and spend the last night in Uummannaq.
During the winter we recommend to dress in layers with clothing suitable for temperatures down to -25°C.
We thought you would find useful to have a guide with recommendations of what to pack for your winter adventure in Greenland (clothing and essential items) in order to be comfortable and enjoy your adventure to the fullest. That’s why we have created one for you. Feel free to download it and start planning your trip with us!
